An autopsy has indicated that the death of self-exiled Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky might have resulted from hanging. Yet the London police found no signs of violent death.
“The results of the post-mortem examination, carried out by a Home Office pathologist, have found the cause of death is consistent with hanging,"the Thames Valley Police said in a statement.
"The pathologist has found nothing to indicate a violent struggle," it added. "Further tests will now be carried out, including toxicology and histology examinations, the results of which are likely to take several weeks.”
Later Berezovsky's Moscow-based lawyer Alexander Dobrovinsky confirmed the oligarch's death.
"[Berezovsky] had recently been in a terrible, dreadful state - nothing but debts, he was practically broke, he was selling paintings and something else," the lawyer said.
